supposed to be a batian of reason. you worked in the obama white house, does it shock you when lindsey graham stands up and votes against this. he's somewhat a respected member of the senate. >> nothing shocks me any more. the republican party has been moving away from disability for some time. when you look at other things that the congress has focused on medicaid, healthcare, the affordable care act even looking at what's going on with the fiscal cliff right? are we going to balance our budget by lessoning lessening the support to those with disability or focus on those at the top 1%. this trend is ongoing and i hope it doesn't continue. the bipartisan tradition around disability is longstanding, and i think it's mourn. it's one of those few issues that traditionally both republicans and democrats can agree on, and i hope we can get back to that point. a lot of work need to be done in the republican party for us to get there. >> eliot: your point is so well taken. there should be no disagreement about extending rights to those with disabilities. this is not a partisan issue.

phrased that, the obama administration's decision to invite him, because the white house says they weren't the ones who invited him at all, but they didn't step in to stop it or object to it in any way after it emerged that he had gone on this rant eight years ago, and it is a disgusting rant, and i think most of the viewers would agree that, you know, calling for the troops and their families to be killed slowly and painfully is controversial at best. now, he did issue an apology, but what should the white house have done, brad? >> well, i know something about this because as somebody who scheduled the president of the united states, george w. bush, the white house celebration is an event that is typically on every president's calendar. but that doesn't mean the president has to attend and has carte blanche over the producers or the producers or have carte blanche over the president as to what he will do and who he will appear with. we had vetting and research at the white house when i was there, and i would have picked this up and said, hey, by the way, this sensation is somebody

believe president obama, the white house, congressional democrats, want to go over the fiscal cliff because they believe that it is more politically advantageous for them to do so. is that a sentiment you agree with or not? >> i believe that the president and the democrats see a political victory at the bottom of the fiscal cliff. i see financial problems for our country at the bottom of the fiscal cliff with unemployment over 9%, and another recession. i think -- i want to find a solution working with people on both sides of the aisle but when you have howard dean, the former chairman of the democratic national committee, you have patty murray, who ran the democratic senatorial committee encouraging going over the cliff i think it's irresponsible. i think we ought to have the president sitting down with john boehner, finding solutions that can, one, pass the house, and, two, be signed by the president, and i believe if you find that solution, it will pass the senate. >> senator john barrasso, thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> next on "andrea mitchell reports" -- as the hous

[laughter] >> and decide -- i said you keep a diary craxi said yes, not on all this detail. let's see. so i'm sure he will write a really interesting memoir. >> what did he tell you about that? >> that it existed. no detail. he didn't offer any of it or read from it or anything like that. is it dictated? is it written? ronald reagan kept his diary. it was secret. and now they published all of reagan's diary. i mean, who would have thought? certainly obama much more a sense of history and literature and writing from his own books and so forth, which are very kind o

can tell us about obama's second term. white house insiders make clear that obama remains genuinely undecided on who to nominate for secretary of state, and understandably so given that how he picks could well set the philosophical tone for the next four years, whether he will be accommodating or whether he is going to use brick bats to deal with the republicans. what do you think? do you think the president wants to set a tone of conciliation for the second term or do you they he wants to stand and it fight? >> i do see a digging in of the heels over this, and it's unfortunate because i think that there could have been a much smarter debate over the secretary of state position. i mean, you could argue -- i think susan rice has many advantages, but you can also argue that there are some areas that she's weaker on. i think that that's a sensible debate to have. i think kerry would be a fine secretary of state. what i don't like is i do feel it's becoming an idealogical battle, and it's becoming a battle that has nothing to do with who is going to do a good job, and it's a very import
